Brilliant post, Bains. Mahalo!

"That whole thread about LU and the one about Clinton in Beijing is talking about how great it is that Bernie is going to get votes from RWers. They are saying it is more important than Clinton speaking out for global women's rights in the 90s."

They would.

"You willfully ignore the obvious, and you have recommended threads attacking Black Lives Matter. You think I'm going to actually take seriously your pretense at moral righteousness? Anyone who attacks movements for civil rights like BLM shows themselves to be diametrically opposed to the fundamental values that are central to my politics."

Anyone who attacks #BlackLivesMatter does so at their own peril and that of the candidate they are ignorant trying to protect.


"Poll Shows Why Black Lives Matter Activists Should Be Proud"



snip//

Nearly one year after Michael Brown was shot dead by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, a new poll shows a growing number of people believe there's much to be done before black lives will be valued as much as others.

Fifty-nine percent of Americans now believe changes are needed to give African-Americans equal rights, according to a Pew Research Center poll released on Wednesday.

That's up from 46 percent in a Pew poll just last year, before Brown was killed by officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, setting off a series of demonstrations and fueling the Black Lives Matter movement.

MOre..

I love the amazing work #BlackLivesMatters activists have been doing.. especially at Netroots Nation!

"It's amazing what campaigns will bring out of people ... Sometimes, their real self shines..

through."

Wow, I guess so!

Thanks again for your OP, dsc.. too bad stating the truth about Bernie is taken as a "smear against a liberal".

They can't debate so they resort to personal attacks.

Your patience is astoundingly admirable with dealing with CT, Cali!



rolf 6 debates!

Excellent, Hillary! Mahalo William. Number of times they lied about Hillary and President Obama?

Yeah, I didn't watch.. but I can imagine.. that's their clown bread and circus.

Hillary took good care of the gopropaganda crap.

Yes, it's not just the NYT that's calling CS out.."Obama Allies Blast Schumer on Iran Deal, Talk of

Talk of New Leader (Updated) (Video)"

MoveOn said its 8 million members will withhold funding for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and from any Democratic candidate who sides with Schumer.

“While not unexpected, it is outrageous and unacceptable that the Democrat who wants to be the party’s leader in the Senate is siding with the Republican partisans and neoconservative ideologues who are trying to scrap this agreement and put us on the path to war,” said MoveOn.org Political Action Executive Director Ilya Sheyman in a statement.

“Our country doesn’t need another Joe Lieberman in the Senate, and it certainly doesn’t need him as Democratic leader. The vast majority of Democratic voters — the people who elected President Obama in part because of our shared belief that war must always be a last resort — will not stand for it.”

Priceless! I just posted the image here, DMM.. Mahalo!



And, Racial Equality!

Hillary was talking about racial inequality on June 20, 2015 in San Francisco at the Conference of Mayors..



Started out talking about the massacre in Charleston that had just happened.. and making a good eloquent case for common sense gun laws. Receiving a standing ovation!

"We need to tackle this problem With urgency and conviction. Mentions President Obama kindly 3 times.

"..Take racist violence head on.. struggle with racism is far from finished.."

"Race remains a deep fault line in America.. states racial inequality.

"Can't hide from hard truths on racial injustice.."

Poignant story about Debbie Dills.. I didn't know that.

Encourages "Cities against racism.. and preventing gun violence.."

We have to be "Too busy to hate" "Need more love and kindness in this country."

No wonder Hillary is doing so well with the African American Community on the whole.. she really speaks to them.

Hillary is a strong, powerful, intelligent woman who has the strength and the passion to be our President.

Mahalo DSB~

"Americans who seek an egalitarian society do not tell black activists to keep their mouths shut

because they fear a political hero can't take criticism."

Well done, Bains.. Mahalo for your post.
